Luxurious Brown Rice Pudding

Luxurious Brown Rice Pudding

This brown rice pudding, and the creamy sauce that goes with it, is gluten-free, sugar-free, dairy-free, and egg-free – and it tastes great!

Brown rice has many health benefits filled with lots of vitamins and minerals. I consider it a smart carb and a powerfood.

This recipe is a favorite dessert of mine that has gone through many changes through the years. I often do not even bake it! I just cook it on top of the stove in a pot until it is the consistency I like.

Brown Rice Pudding

1 cup short grain brown rice, cooked
1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/2 cups rice, almond or soy milk
1 tsp. vanilla extract
3 tbsp. coconut oil
1 – 2 tsp. cinnamon
1 cup sultana raisins
1/2 cup dates, chopped
1/2 cup unsweetened coconut
1/2 cup walnuts, chopped


  • Cook rice.
  • Mix cooked rice in a glass baking dish with remaining ingredients except for cinnamon.
  • Sprinkle cinnamon on top.
  • Bake at 400 for 40 to 50 minutes. Serve with Cream Sauce on top.

Cream Sauce


1 1/4 cup rice, almond or soy milk
3/4 cup apple juice
3 tbsp. arrowroot
